Static Structural analysis of Piston


#1

I’m working on static structural analysis of piston. I have a doubt related to the constraint to be used for making the degree of freedom of piston as zero for applying the pressure. Should I use the fixed support or remote displacement for the piston pin surface for constraining my piston?

Hi @rraj111998,

Either one can work depending on the details of your model. I would suggest running both and then comparing the results.

Good Luck,
Christopher
